Why do we need a program like Metro? The gap in college completion between low-income and high-income students has doubled in the last 35 years. California is now the 50th out of the 50 states in its graduation rate for Latino/a and African American students--yet our state’s K-12 schools are already a majority Latino/a.  California can and must do better! Education equity and timely college completion is what Metro is all about. 

Metro is for you if…….

  • You are a CCSF or SF State first year student getting ready to start your first or second semester.
  • You are concerned that high school has not given you the preparation you need for college.
  • You are someone who wants a meaningful career that makes a difference in the world.  You want to give back to your community and help create a more just and healthy society.
  • You are focused, dedicated and have the time and the commitment for a rigorous course of study.
